Matter-motion Terms in Physics
Blog 20160420 Matter-motion Terms in Physics
Matter-motion terms represent essential calculations describing the motion of matter. Without the calculation of “momentum,” “force,” and “energy” much of physics would be impossible. Nonetheless, these terms containing a symbol for matter and a symbol for motion are often misused. Momentum (P=mv), force (F=ma), and energy (E=1/2 mv2 or E=mc2) neither exist nor occur—they are only calculations. The misuse is due to many factors. It involves general sloppiness induced by shorthand use over time. It involves the necessary contradiction between reality and ideality, an affliction especially common to those who use mathematics. Above all, it involves the great philosophical struggle between materialism and immaterialism.
Remember that the First Assumption of Science, materialism (The external world exists after the observer does not) implies that the world consists only of matter, an abstraction for “all things” having xyz dimensions. Immaterialists, of course, do not agree. They have a tendency to hypothesize “things” that do not have xyz dimensions. In their minds, momentum, force, and energy have a kind of objective existence. That is why regressive physicists speak of the “four fundamental forces” and of “dark energy” as if those were actual things. In popular culture, General Dodonna of Star Wars hopes that the “Force” may be with us as if the “Force” could protect us by looking over our shoulder or we could carry it with us for self-defense.
All in good fun, but this gets to be serious in the usual misinterpretation of the E=mc2 equation. In this, “mass” supposedly turns into “energy,” which flits off into empty space. The idea behind the equation was first mentioned by Newton:
Note that Newton hereby uses “corpuscles of light” in much the same way that “energy” is used in the modern misinterpretation. The correct interpretation is rather simple: What actually happens is that internal, submicrocosmic motion of the atom transfers to supermicrocosms in the macrocosm. What are those supermicrocosms? Aether particles, of course, which provide the medium for the transmission of the motion in the form of waves.
In reviewing the history of the equation, Auffray frankly states: “The discovery of the mass-energy relation E=mc2 cannot properly be attributed to Albert Einstein.” Although many others had suggested the relationship from classical principles, the formal discovery was made by Henri Poincaré, a famous physicist, who presented the equation as m=E/c2 in 1900. This was five years before Einstein used it without attribution in his (failed) attempt to derive it by using Special Relativity Theory.
Although the interpretation is usually messed up, the E=mc2 equation proves to be correct whenever atomic fusion or fission occurs. The equation has nothing whatsoever to do with relativity. Its association with Einstein is just an unfortunate product of regressive propaganda. This is especially important since Steve Bryant showed relativity to be both invalid and unnecessary.
That goes for General Relativity Theory as well. If any matter-motion term is to be associated with Einstein, it is the concept of “spacetime.” Without spacetime, there would be no Big Bang Theory—the hypothesis that the universe is expanding away from us in all directions would be obviously absurd. In neomechanics, we assume that space is matter and that time is motion. This means that, like the other matter-motion terms, spacetime neither exists nor occurs. The demise of relativity will be followed by the destruction of the Big Bang Theory and its replacement by Infinite Universe Theory.
